The German Communist Resistance 1933-1945 - T. Derbent
According to most historians, "until 1938, there was no organized resistance in Germany".  Its birth in 1939 is often attributed to aristocrats and the big bourgeoisie.  As for the workers, according to David Schoenbaum, "they failed, in any effective sense, to produce resistance.  Their marginal protest in the years 1933-39 was economic, not political, a matter of wages and hours not, it seems, of fundamental opposition." So what happened to the powerful German Communist Party then?  When the KPD was banned, its paramilitary formations numbered over 100,000 members.  The Antifa league had 250,000 members.  Nazi repression left activists who had been unable or unwilling to leave Germany with a choice between three mindsets.  Some, discouraged by the terrible defeat of the communist movement, deprived of leadership and intimidated by state terror, abandoned the struggle, and a small number collaborated with the regime.  But tens of thousands of communists adopted a position of resistance.  Party structures crumbled, cadres were imprisoned or exiled, sympathizers were watched.  But clandestine Party organizations were reconstituted very quickly, to be generally just as quickly dismantled...and rebuilt again.  This book tells the forgotten story of this communist resistance.

The Communist Necessity - J. Moufawad-Paul
The Communist Necessity is a polemical interrogation of the practice of “social movementism” that has enjoyed a normative status at the centres of capitalism. Moufawad-Paul argues that a refusal to recognize contemporary revolutionary movements from the 1980’s to the present results in the reification of capitalist “end of history” discourse within this movementist conceptualization of theory and practice. The Communist Necessity sketches out the boundaries of the movementist terrain, as well as its contemporary ideologues, so as to raise questions that may be uncomfortable for those who are still devoted to movementist praxis, particularly if they define themselves as Marxist. Aware of his past affinity with social movementism and some apprehension of the problem of communist orthodoxy, the author argues that the recognition of communism’s necessity “requires a new return to the revolutionary communist theories and experiences won from history.”

Specific Characteristics of Our People's War - Jose Maria Sison
"From the great treasury of Marxism-Leninism, we draw basic principles and historical lessons to shed light on the people's war that we are waging.  But these are of general value; they are a general guide to our action.  To rest content with them, without integrating them with our concrete practice, is to turn them into lifeless dogma.  To dispense with them is to engage in blind action"
